In case you find you need a little refresher course after taking the above quiz, Jennifer at et tu, Jen? has performed an invaluable service. She has compiled a very thorough reading list for Catholics. She has even included it in a PDF so it is easy to file for future reference. She covers everything from the basic doctrine to improving your prayer life. Thank you, Jen!!!
Rich Leonardi points us to two books by Diane Moczar, Don’t Know Much About Catholic History and Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know. This sounds exactly like what I am looking for to develop a Church history course for adult education in our parish.
Like her "Ten Dates Every Catholic Should Know," Diane Moczar's "Don't Know Much About Catholic History" is a perfect introduction to its subject. The difference lies in the format. While "Ten Dates" uses ten historical vantage points to view the role of divine action -- Providence -- in Christian civilization, "Don't Know Much" is more of a survey of critical events, from the Roman era until the outbreak of the Protestant movement.
Well, I don’t know about you, but my wish list for books just grew exponentially.
